Smithing is used to turn ore into bars, weapons, armour, and arrowtips. Smithing an item takes two seconds. Utilizing Seeing Gold Potions gives a 10-75% chance to produce a Gold Bar when smelting Silver Bars. Purchasing and equipping Smithing Gloves from the Shop causes a +50% bonus to Smithing XP while the gloves have charges remaining. Raising Smithing to level 99 will unlock the Smithing Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Smithing Skillcape halves the Coal Ore requirement when smelting bars.

Smithing or Smelting an item normally takes 2 seconds. Purchasing the Art of Control god upgrade reduces this time by 20% to 1.6 seconds.

Mastery Unlocks

Smithing has two Mastery unlocks.

  • Starting at mastery level 10, smithed items have a 10% chance to have their output doubled, scaling incrementally, every 20 levels, to 50% at mastery level 90.
  • Starting at mastery level 20, smithed items have a 5% chance to have their costs refunded, scaling incrementally, every 20 levels, to 20% at mastery level 80.


The skillcape can be purchased from the store for Coins.svg 1,000,000 after the player reaches Smithing 99.
